For maximum e-mail security, download and install the S/MIME control onto all computers that are used to access Outlook Web Access. S/MIME is a security feature that enables you encrypt and digitally sign e-mail messages that you send out, view encrypted content in messages that you receive, and verify senders’ digital signatures.
Before you proceed to secure Outlook Web Access, be aware that you must have a digital ID (also known as a certificate) to use the S/MIME control.
Installing S/MIME Control
1. On a computer running Windows 2000 or later and Internet Explorer 6 or later, log on to Outlook Web Access.
2. In Outlook Web Access, in the Navigation Pane, click Options. If the Navigation Pane is collapsed, click the Go to options button.
3. On the Options page, under E-Mail Security, click Download.
4. If any security warnings appear, click Yes for the control to download and install.
